As part of our Madiba centenary celebrations, the Film industry Fund handed a new classroom to Umzomhle Early Childhood development Centre in Khayelitsha. The donation was to the value of R100 000,00. Breadline Africa match funded this project.
We once again partnered with Breadline Africa in this incredibly worthy cause.
It is not insignificant that our President has this week handed half of his salary to the Nelson Mandela foundation specifically for ECD's and that Madiba whom we celebrate this month cherished children and recognized that education is the key to our success.
It is proven that much of a child's cognitive development takes place before grade 1 and this is why it is so important to support these institutions.
Mama Elizabeth, the principal of the school which she has run for 21 years was overjoyed at the new edition which will allow them to split their pre grade r and grade r classes and provide better for the 160 students.
We also gave the 160 kids a small lunch pack each consisting of three fruits and a small packet of sweets.
